We are committed to creating and maintaining opportunities for deaf and disabled people within our partner organisations. Here are some resources and insight into how we are working to educate ourselves and break down barriers internally.
The Access section can be reached from top level navigation, ensuring that those who use screen readers can get to it quickly and within moments of arriving on the home page.
We also started developing audio brochures and adding them to our website and sharing them on social media.
All event pages display when accessible performances are taking place by using an icon – e.g. captioned, BSL interpreted, etc.
We also developed a number of videos, all of which are captioned, to add to our access pages too, helping to explain what we can offer and also what audiences can expect when visiting:
There are going to be plenty of ways to get involved with An Agent for Change across the country as more Agents for Change positions are created more opportunities will arise. This is an exciting time for the development of access and this is your chance to get involved!
If you would like to submit an article from elsewhere, blog post about an experience you have had (positive or negative!) or even a video of something you have seen that helps tell our story of change, you can do it here. Please make your stories compelling and shareable, relevant and provocative, and we’ll do the rest.
